“It’s Ghost of Kreestmass Disappoint-ted!” That’s all she said.
“What’s that mean lady? Tell me.”
Her eyes suddenly fixed on something over Jenkins shoulder. Jenkins turned……..
Here’s my addition to this story…
Jenkins turned round and gasped. It couldn’t be, he thought to himself. No goddammed way.
The figure stood dead still. His suit had seen better days and come to think of it, so had his skin. His once muscular chest was puffed out, the ribs pushing against the fabric that now hung loose around his midriff. His hands rested upon his hips, his fingers thin. On closer inspection, you could see bone through the decaying flesh. The trunks he wore over his suit sagged, just about held up by his belt. The once tight fitting fabric of his tights now resembled the skin around a turkey’s neck. His rotten cape hung limp down his back.
Jenkins’s attention was caught by movement on the floor. He looked down at the figures dark boots. The toe of his left boot was moving and suddenly a small rat burst through and scampered across the mall floor.
“I am the Ghost of Christmas Superheroes Past, and I am here to save you from this, this, this giant.”
As he spoke his mandible fell loose, hanging on by the remnants of green muscle.
Jenkins looked at the woman. She didn’t seem to be convinced that the six feet four inch man, well now just over five feet tall and half the weight he used to be, stood in front of them was going to save them from the Ghost of Kreestmas Disappoint-ted.
“Are you sure? Don’t you think you need some back-up? Here, I can call for back-up,” Jenkins said, holding up his radio.
“o eed.” The mandible fell off as he jumped onto the railing next to him. A cloud of green dust puffed out of his right tight as his tibia crumbled.
Crashing and screaming echoed around them.
“Iss is e en ov iss!”
The Ghost of Christmas Superheroes Past leapt from the railing’s, flew a couple of feet and plumetted to the floor below, exploding into a cloud of green dust.
“Oh…..shit. We’re well and truly fuc…”
“No we’re not. Look who’s here.”
That is my contribution to this STORY VIRUS.
